Air purifiers are helpful in removing harmful particles from the air like mold, bacteria, dust, and other allergens and irritants. Adding an air purifier to our baby registry was a no-brainer. Our entire household suffers from allergies and my daughter was being born during flu season. Unbeknownst to us, we’d also be experiencing a pandemic. Having the Okaysou AirMic4S, a medical-grade air purifier in our home has proven to be beneficial during these times.

What I like about the Okaysou AirMic4S
While researching air purifiers for my daughter’s nursery, I knew I wanted one that was small, quiet, and efficient at removing allergens and other harmful particles from the air. Baby’s lungs are sensitive and still developing, so ensuring my daughter is breathing in the cleanest air possible is important. The AirMic4S promises that, along with other features I like, such as:
Quiet – During the day I can run the air purifier in any of the three fan speeds and not hear it, especially with my windows open. At night, when things are less busy you’re more prone to hearing the whirring of the purifier. But that’s where the purifiers Sleep Mode comes into play.
Three fan speeds – I like having the ability to control the intake of the air using any of the three available fan speeds. I can adjust it higher or when we have the windows open to help move out any incoming pollen.
Quickly cleans the air – Within 30 minutes of turning on the Okaysou AirMic4S medical-grade air purifier, I noticed the air felt cleaner and less stale when I breathed in.
Okaysou boasts that this air purifier cleans the air in a 300 square foot room three times in one hour, which is about every twenty minutes. The clean air deliverable rate (CADR) is 410 f3 per hour.
Lightweight – The air purifier weighs 6.6 lbs., a little bit less than my daughter’s birth weight (6 lbs. 15.9 oz). It’s light, which means I can easily move it around her nursery or into my bedroom for when she’s in there with me.
Set a timer. Save Energy – The AirMic4S air purifier is equipped with a timer that allows you to save energy and only use the air purifier when you need to. The timer can be set in by 2, 4, or 8 hours. I choose the 8-hour setting for bedtime.
Filter replacement – The filter only needs to be replaced every six to eight months. If you can’t remember when you last installed the filter, there’s no need to worry because the air purifier is equipped with a smart change filter indicator. The indicator light will turn on once the filter needs to be changed.

What I would change about the Okaysou AirMic4S
The Okaysou AirMic4S medical-grade air purifier is almost too perfect. However, there is one thing I would change, and that would be adding the capability to operate the air purifier remotely.
As a mom of an infant, I need one less thing to get up in the middle of the night to do. Being able to use a remote or an app on my phone to operate the AirMic4S would be an added convenience. I’m sure other moms would agree.
Overall, I am happy with the Okaysou AirMic4S medical-grade air purifier. Although I’ve only been using it for a month, I can tell the difference in the air versus using it and not using it. I can’t wait to see what the filter reveals once it needs to be changed. I am almost too scared to take a look.
Cost: The air purifier costs $88.98. The replacement filters cost $22.99.
